Travel Photography is as diverse as Travel Experiences can be, and this very diversity is probably the main specificity of Travel Photography. You actually have to cover almost all possible fields of Photography: Portraits / People; Landscapes; Architecture; Wild Life; and maybe Sport in some countries. Continue Reading →
I visited Uganda twice. In August 2011, during 2 weeks, I discovered the string of National Parks in western Uganda, starting with Lake Bunyonyi, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Queen Elisabeth National Park, Kibale Rain Forest, Semliki National Park, Murchison Falls National Park and last but not least Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. The 3rd week, I spent in Jinja.
In January 2017, I spent 2 weeks and refocused on the National Parks I preferred most (except Bwindi, as I went Gorilla Tracking in Rwanda): Lake Bunyonyi, Queen Elisabeth National Park, Kibale Rain Forest, Murchison Falls National Park & Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. Continue Reading →
Yes, I am quite new to Instagram, though I now have been quite active over the last 8 to 10 months. With a few hundred pictures shared on this Social Media, it’s a good time to look back at the “feedback” (Likes & Comments”) received…
In January 2017, I spent 2 weeks in Rwanda. Of course I went to the Parc National des Volcans & Tracked Mountain Gorillas – This was one of my motivations for returning to Uganda & discovering Rwanda.
I also visited 4 different Memorials of the Genocide, one of the darkest episodes in Human History, each actually showing a different aspect of those horrid events: Kigali Memorial Center, Nyamata Genocide Memorial (near Kigali), Murambi Genocide Memorial (near Butare / Huye), Bisesero Genocide Memorial (near Kibuye / Karongi).

Yes, this Photo Selection is quite a kitschy one… But Social Medias proved me that those Sunset Pictures (and Sunrise Pictures too) are extremely popular! So let’s go for it as well… Continue Reading →
I sometimes use roads well traveled to discover and photograph world famous sights, like the Taj Mahal, Angkor Wat, Machu Picchu or the Golden Gate Bridge, but most of the time I try to stay Off The Beaten Track. Believe it or not, but some of the best Architecture Pictures I made were (in my opinion) not one from those unique monuments… Continue Reading →
More often than not, Wild Life Photography is associated with Safaris in Africa, looking for some nice shots of the “Big 5”. Nonetheless, opportunities are numerous on all continents. Actually, in my experience, some of the best Wild Life Pictures can even be made in lesser known destinations… Continue Reading →
Traveling through Asia, Africa & South America, I had the chance to discover and experience some of the most breathtaking Landscapes on this planet, an incredible opportunity for amazing pictures. But not all the pictures of Landscape I especially like were made in “unique places”: more often than not, the right light, the right composition, the right idea enabled me to shoot some of the nicest pictures I have ever made (in my opinion).

Discovering new cultures and different lifestyles is definitely one of the highlights when traveling. For me, shooting Portraits of those different cultures too! This is all the more true since traditional ways of life are disappearing at a devastating speed, replaced by a standardized, uniformed way of life. Will we all wear the same Jeans, the same T-Shirts and the same Sneakers soon? Probably! This is also why I try to travel to more remote areas, where people still stick to their culture & traditions.

Ethiopia is a stunning country that offers the largest Cultural Heritage of Sub-Saharan Africa, built over centuries by some of the oldest Jewish, Christian (Orthodox) and Muslim communities on earth, and by Empires which influence spread much further than African boundaries…
The Northern Historical Route (Bahir Dar, Gonder, Lalibela, Aksum, Tigray), in the highlands of Ethiopia, but also Harar in the East, take the visitors through the grandeurs of Ethiopian Christian Orthodox culture, with stunning Rock-Hewn Churches and Monasteries, but also through the vestiges of the various Ethiopian Empires, starting with the legendary Queen of Sheba and ending in the 20th Century.
